Compared to the wealth and size of the religious lobby, the Secular Coalition for America can seem like the brave, tenacious Chihuahua battling the lumbering, giant Great Dane. According to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life study, “Lobbying for the Faithful: Religious Advocacy Groups in Washington, D.C.,” the religious right spends $390 million dollars a year to lobby federal government officials on their issues.
The Secular Coalition for America spends just $348,000.
However, we have a secret weapon that allows us to grow stronger in spite of each obstacle…
Because of you, we have captured the attention of lawmakers here in Washington, D.C., and at our annual Secular Summit and Lobby Day, hundreds of nontheists and allies will converge on Capitol Hill to stand up to the old dogs and let their secular voices be heard. On April 24-26, 2013, participants in our Lobby Day and Summit will go to directly to the Hill and meet with Representatives, Senators and congressional staffs to say we are here, we are voters, and we are secular!
Join the Secular Coalition for America and every nontheist attending our Secular Summit and Lobby Day by making a contribution of $50, $100 or more. We are proud to fight for you. Your contributions support the training, resources, and visibility for secular and nontheistic Americans throughout the country. Your gift will help the Secular Coalition for America remind the government that atheist, agnostic, humanist and secular Americans are steadfast in their commitment to real, lasting recognition and change. Just like that Chihuahua, we are more powerful each time we are heard!
Thank you for everything you do!
